I absolutely fell in love with the Firebird trilogy by Claudia Gray (I even have the first two books signed!), and while I haven’t read the final book in the series (shame on me, I know), I am absolutely thrilled for her next release, Defy the Stars!
Sci-fi isn’t my favorite genre, but when it comes from an author whose series I previously enjoyed, I’m more likely to jump on the bandwagon. After all, take a look at that cover!
It looks absolutely amazing! Defy the Stars is the first book in an untitled series. The cover along makes me think of earth-shattering choices and consequences made by the characters!
Here’s the synopsis:
Noemi Vidal is a teen soldier from the planet Genesis, once a colony of Earth that’s now at war for its independence. The humans of Genesis have fought Earth’s robotic “mech” armies for decades with no end in sight.
After a surprise attack, Noemi finds herself stranded in space on an abandoned ship where she meets Abel, the most sophisticated mech prototype ever made. One who should be her enemy. But Abel’s programming forces him to obey Noemi as his commander, which means he has to help her save Genesis–even though her plan to win the war will kill him.
Together they embark on a daring voyage through the galaxy. Before long, Noemi begins to realize Abel may be more than a machine, and, for his part, Abel’s devotion to Noemi is no longer just a matter of programming.
Defy the Stars is set to release on April 4. You can order this book from many major booksellers. Unfortunately, I’m unaware of any pre-order incentives, but if you know of one, please let me know!
What books are you excited for this April? There are other amazing books coming out this month, and I’m excited to here what you’re looking forward to! 🙂
